Support Our Work
Your donations help our members achieve.
The KU MS Achievement Center is a self-sustaining program. We rely on membership fees (program members pay $80 per month to attend), individual giving, grants and fundraisers to sustain our program.
You can help us achieve in several ways:
Individual Giving - Make a one-time gift to the MS Center, commit to a monthly contribution or join the Achievers Circle by committing to give $1000 or more per year. You can make these gifts securely online or by mailing a check payable to: KU Endowment - MS Achievement Center

Plan a fundraiser - Plan a Bowl-a-thon, Trivia Night or garage sale and donate the proceeds to the KU MS Achievement Center. Get creative and have fun with friends!
Participate in fundraisers benefitting the MS Achievement Center - Two fundraisers each year provide nearly half the operating funds for the MS Achievement Center. Support people with MS by getting involved with either event - or both!
• Eat. Bid. Laugh. - An evening of good food, lively bidding and laughter. This event takes place in the fall.
• Race to Nowhere - Kansas City's original stationary bike race! Each rider pedals for 30 minutes with heats running throughout the morning. After 30 minutes of pedaling, mileage is calculated for each team or individual. At the end of the day prizes are awarded for the highest mileage for individuals and teams in both novice and advanced categories. This event takes place the last Saturday in February.
Planned Giving - You can become an integral part of the future of the MS Achievement Center by including a charitable gift within your overall estate and financial plans. If you would like to extend your support to create a lasting legacy, you can choose among several gift arrangements. Whether you want to put your donation to work today, or benefit the program after your lifetime, you can find a charitable plan that provides for your family while you support the center.
